WOW, where did all this snow come from? Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but from what I heard the roads were a real bummer for some of our commuters.
Anyhow, back to business…it’s and ART weekend in CLEVELAND and I couldn’t be more jazzed to get out and explore.
First up is tonight’s opening of the new Transformer Station located in Ohio City (next to the Cleveland Vibrator Company…tee hee.) The Transformer Station is a project presented by the Bidwell Foundation in association with the Cleveland Museum of Art bringing contemporary art from around the world to the west side of Cleveland.
Happy Friday all you CLE crafters! Today I bring you my last and final holiday decor idea. Nothing too fancy or especially new, but it’s just a way to tell that special someone you care. A holiday countdown garland made especially for your loved one. It’s easy with a few simple steps.
Hey CLE…did everyone run out and raid their garage for a shiny tomato cage last night? I’m glad so many of you liked the simple idea of how to add a touch of holiday flair to any room.
Picking up on the holiday craft ideas, today we are going to make illuminated artwork for any space in your pad.
If you’re just not in the mood for the traditional stockings hanging on your mantel this year, then these illuminated paintings might just fit the bill. It’s an easy project to complete with just a few simple steps.
As most of my readers know by now, not only am I a blogger, but I am also a passionate designer, pug lover, Cleveland cheerleader as well as a craft and holiday enthusiast.
A few months ago I was approached by Moen, a global faucet and accessories company based here in Northeast Ohio, to help out with a project that they felt might be a fun partnership.
Moen was looking to create a series of holiday decor ideas and home crafts to include in their stylish and informative e-newsletter. They were looking for fun and easy projects to make during the busy upcoming holiday season, and of course I was up for the challenge.
Over the next few days you will find a series of five home decor and crafting ideas that might inspire you to head to your local craft supplies store and dive into the holiday Cleveland style!
First up: A modern decor twist on the tomato cage.
Hey there, what a stunning example of a sunny summer day! It’s gonna be a great weekend weather-wise and there is so much happening around town…here are a few ideas for your weekend planning.
Tonight kicks off the annual Weapons of Mass Creation design conference and music festival. Get your weekend pass now to see unique bands, hear area creative speaker..s.don’t miss “Mr. Johnny Cupcakes” himself speak Saturday evening 7-7:45 on the importance of developing a great brand…if you have a t-shirt wear it. On Sunday make sure you go hear words of creative wisdom from my friend and fellow creative Brian Jasinski of Grey Cardigan! As an inpiring designer, you also might want to check out the “Ask the Pro’s” table on Sunday from noon to 2pm…you never know who will be there reviewing work…wink wink!
Another creative city explosion will be this years 23rd Annual Parade the Circle taking place Saturday from 11-4pm in University Circle. This eclectic gathering and celebration of the arts is one not to be missed.
Another fun and quirky happening that you might think is fun is the annual Spirit of Cleveland Airstream rally at Burke Lakefront Airport. Come and check out over 50 historic Airstream trailers parked in the “silver city.” (Friday & Saturday)
Looking to get your 5K run on, this new race looks so great. The Pier W Copper River Salmon 5K Run takes place Saturday (mid)morning and cumulates on the upper desk of Pier W. Really cool thing, your race entry fee covers a full lunch provided by the restaurant. It is going to be a great day for a run and lunch…sign up early as spots are limited
And then don’t forget there is always the beach at the Lake, bike rides through the city, patios galore! So much to do…it’s gonna be a wild creative weekend in Cleveland.
